Holy smokes, where did this week go??!! I was wanting to get in at least a few posts this week, but life gets crazay sometimes :). I have a few things to share with you before I leave. Yes I said LEAVE. I am off to the States for a nice hot vacation! I can’t wait to be warm, shop and most importantly spend some quality time with my family! So I want to leave you with a couple of recipes and a quick DIY idea!
I wanted to share this DIY recipe for oat flour because it is simple and a great money saver 🙂
All you have to do is place the desired amount of oats in a blender, and blend until it becomes a flour like consistency. When I bake I always replace the flour they call for, with oat flour and use the same ratio. I have never had any trouble substituting.
Last, but never least, I wanted to share this absolutely delicious looking dessert recipe. I love clean desserts, but I would have to say apple crisp may be my favorite! It makes me happy when I can eat something I love and know everything in it is good for me. This may be on my dinner table tonight for dessert :).
This picture is perfect and true. Train your worries away, instead of eating them away. Getting to the gym takes motivation and determination to continue going, but once you get in a habit do everything you can to stay in your routine. You will be much happier after a workout, than after eating ice cream or a chocolate bar, and it is so much more rewarding. Some things I do for motivation are: “Like” as many fitness Pages or fitness athletes on Facebook as I can. I find filling my Newsfeed with positive people who are interested in the same thing I am, really gets me motivated. I also read blogs, go on Pinterest and the most important, I have a gym partner. And although working out is important, eating is 80% of the battle. Making physical and internal changes starts in the kitchen, not in the gym. But I do believe both go hand in hand. If you go to the gym, the less you are likely to eat a chocolate bar to ruin all your hard work. So get cooking in the kitchen and pick up those dumbbells in the gym :).
What helps you stay motivated?
If I have internet I will try to post while I am away, but I don’t want to leave you with any empty promises. So enjoy your upcoming week, and since I am not here, use each other for motivation! See you soon!!
